I am looking for a simple mount that would allow me to put my Panasonic on a desk. (with no wall mounting required) Since I'm not sure what the typical plasma looks like on the back, here are some pictures to give you an idea of what I need.
Can someone recommend a very slim mounting solution for this Panasonic TH-42PHD7UY? I only have two cables running down from the plasma - power and HD cables. My desk is not deep and I want something very slim.
Because of anticipated wife rage, I am looking to get something ASAP :P
here is the back of the TV, showing the four mounting knobs.

I guess if you already have the desk or don't have a room for a stand, but I think that would be my first choice. I know the one Z-line stand I have been looking at is only $199 and it holds up to a 50 inch plasma.
Of course with a 42 you could go with something even smaller and cheaper like this one.
unfortunately however, i live in manhattan and am dealing with some very specific space requirements. because i found out today that my walls do not have studs (super old place) i have to proceed with plan b. plan b means that the plasma has to sit on top of a desk. bummer!
just trying to see if any of these stands will definitely work with my plasma. not sure if there are going to be compatibility issues
There are three Panasonic table stands that will work on a Panasonic Pro monitor like you have.
TY-ST07K "duck foot" style that was made for the earliest Pro models.
TY-ST42PA20 (silver w/black trim) that originally came with the 2003-2004 Consumer models
TY-ST08K (all black) that is made specifically for the newer 42"/50" Pro Models (it's the exact same as the TY-ST42PA20 except for the all black color)
None of the consumer model stands from 2005-2010 will work on a Pro model despite what the Ebay sellers claim in their auctions so be aware of that.
Another option is the aftermarket Premier PSD-TTS/B universal table stand that uses the TV's wall mounting holes in the back. This one is height-adjustable and is available with a black base. I've seen them online for as low as a hundred bucks or so.
Those "mounting knobs" are probably screwed into the threaded mounting holes. They most likely were part of the wall bracket system you had. You should be able to remove them, revealing threaded female inserts that will accept the standard metric mounting screws (i think they're M8 x 40mm).

sorry for waking up this thread... does any one know if the above stand TY-ST08 works for a *real old* model: TH-42PWD3 ? (yes, 3rd gen, that's more than 10ys old).
From the above post, I have the impression it works too. However when I talked to a Panasonic "customer service" guy, he said no it does not work. HOWEVER I'm not convinced at all that panasonic guy actually knows *anything*, as it seems to me he simply had no knowledge whatsoever on this old model. (For example he also said the ST-08 does not work with the 7th gen) I think the ppl here at this forum are far more knowledgeable than him.
The original stand model for the PWD3 was TY-ST42PT3 I think.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks !
